About Holiday Inn Old Sydney the Rocks, The Rocks

Old World charm and a rooftop pool with Sydney Harbour views

The heart of The Rocks

This hotel is prized for its rustic style and is set in the colonial, historic center of The Rocks. The Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge are within walking distance, and you can catch a ferry from Circular Quay and cruise the harbor or cross the arch bridge to see the Opera House.

The Rocks

Holiday Inn Old Sydney the Rocks is within a couple of minutes' walk from a range of top restaurants in the vibrant Rocks area of the city. The Museum of Contemporary Art is just a block away and offers world-class exhibitions, plus a café with a panoramic view of Sydney Harbour.

Rooftop pool and dining

The hotel's Playfair Terrace restaurant offers relaxed bistro dining in a light-filled atrium, and there is a bar and a lounge for casual drinks. The rooftop pool and spa tub are a hidden gem in the Rocks area, where you can experience sweeping views of the harbor.

Modern style and views

The air-conditioned guestrooms are a mix of rustic decor and clean modern fittings with 32-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and WiFi. Many of the guestrooms feature picturesque views of Sydney's harbor, city skyline, or the historic sandstone buildings of the Rocks.

Pre-cruise stay - da bestest 😁
Great location - the Rocks have plenty to offer. Nearest to Overseas Passenger Terminal- we just rolled the bags downhill to check in for our cruise. Second time we’ve stayed here pre-cruise. Will be back!

Very Good8.0
We stayed here 2-19. The stay was very nice. Perfect location to walk and see everything! The only let down for us ,we paid extra for a room with a view of the opera house. At check in we were told the view would be blocked for 4 hours due to a cruise ship. The reality was it cane during the day and didn’t leave until the next morning . A lot more than 4 hours!!!! Every person there was extremely wonderful and helpful except one female at the bar in the lobby. It was easy to just avoid her and go to others for questions.
